Dental Cleaning & Exam in Orlando

The health of your teeth and gums impacts much more than just your smile. Inadequate or improper oral hygiene can cause periodontal disease that, if left untreated, may lead to severe complications such as tooth loss and even medical conditions in other areas of your body.

Regular cleanings are the best way to address areas you can't reach on your own. Schedule a visit today!

You may feel that your regular dental cleaning is unnecessary if your teeth appear to be healthy, straight, and white, but oftentimes, a decay-causing buildup of plaque or tartar is hidden out of your sight below the gumline. The crevices between your teeth are another common place for bacteria and plaque to hideout. A professional, deep cleaning can reach areas that brushing and flossing at home just can't find easily.

Prevention and early detection are essential tools for a healthy mouth and overall wellbeing as they normally keep unwanted conditions at bay, and offer better and faster treatment options if any concerns are found. Keeping your dental appointments with Dr. Elena C. Puig is a great step toward staying on top of your dental care and avoiding future issues. If there is a concern to be found, Dr. Puig can address it before it develops further, saving you time and money. In the event that you require more intensive treatments or therapies, Dr. Puig will talk you through all of the available options and recommend the best course of action to get you the results that you want and need.

Your appointment should be relatively easy if you have been following a regular oral hygiene program. When you arrive for your appointment, we'll usually do your preventive exam before proceeding to your preventive dental cleaning.

What Takes Place During a Routine Dental Exam?

Your appointment will begin with a physical exam and discussion of your oral health and any observations that Dr. Puig has made. She will talk about your current dental hygiene practices and make any needed recommendations and alterations that will keep your smile bright and your mouth healthy. The process of the dental exam is as follows:

Our team can also show you how to brush and floss your teeth more effectively. We will pay special attention to any teeth or surfaces that show neglected since you were last seen. This will give you a better understanding of how to properly care for your teeth and gums at home.

How Are My Teeth Cleaned?

The actual teeth cleaning process is fairly straightforward. There is no need to be nervous, as each step is done with your comfort and care in mind:

After your cleaning has been completed, Dr. Puig will conduct a final inspection of your mouth and let you know if there are any other findings indicating more dental work needs to be done. Any cause for concern will be fully explained and all of your questions answered so you remain informed and in charge of your health.

Our team is made up of caring and knowledgeable professionals. We want you to feel relaxed and comfortable during your appointments and able to easily express yourself. You should always feel free to ask for more information about a procedure or bring up any anxieties that you have.

If your teeth, gums, and bite are all in good order, you'll simply make your next appointment before you leave. For optimal oral health, it's best to see us once every six months. In addition, you should always call for an appointment if you experience any pain or notice a new symptom or concern.
